Kia minivan rear-ended on Gosling – two children critically hurt

A Saturday afternoon rear-end crash in the 23800 block of Gosling near Five Oaks sent two children to hospital in critical condition. Channel 13’s story. Channel 11’s story. The children were in a blue-colored Kia minivan that was stopped behind a left-turning Chevrolet Avalanche waiting to make a turn at Gosling and Dovershire. The Kia was rear-ended by a Ford pickup truck and pushed forward into the Avalanche. A lift flight helicopter took the two children to Memorial Hermann. Another child and the parents in the minivan were in stable condition and taken to a nearby hospital by ground ambulance. The children are ages 2, 3 and 5. A picture of the minivan from Channel 2’s web site does not show the rear-end damage, but the failure of the seat backs for both the front driver’s and passenger’s seat indicates a significant impact was involved.
